times" saying, mr. obama's campaign made an early decision to campaign against mr. romney as a conservative. can you have it both ways? >> well, i actually think that the conversation hasn't happened on a left/right axis, necessarily. certainly mitt romney is far to the right on things like women's issues, on choice, on judge, on all those things, but i think the conversation has been more about is he for the top over the folks who are in the middle and at the bottom. if you look at what he did at the debate, he tried to, you know, wiggle his way out of being this guy who is just for the top, this plutocrat that american people think he is basically and that he is, and the truth of the matter is that his position, the things that he has espoused on the campaign trail that he used to get through the republican primary, are positions that are very focused on the top and it looks like what the campaign is doing and what the press is doing is pointing out mitt romney is not telling the truth about the positions he has. >> yeah. but that's presuming he's going to stay on one me
their rallies in the battleground state of virginia. we showed you moments ago mr. romney is in the state of florida at this hour speaking at a rally there they each have a very different take on today's jobs report. >> we can do better. we don't have to stay on the path we have been on. we can do better. there was a report that just came out this morning on job creation this last month. there were fewer new jobs created this month than last month. >> but today's news certainly is not an excuse to try to talk down the economy to score a few political points. it's a reminder that this country has come too far to turn back now. >> harris: then the president went on with his familiar slogan saying governor romney supports the same policies that led to the financial crisis. the governor says he has a plan to create millions of jobs. campaign carl cammeron live in st. petersburg, florida. carl, what else is governor romney saying about the jobs numbers? >> as he continues on here today in st. petersburg, this morning he was in rural western virginia talking in coal country to miners, some of t
. he had a proem with governor romney's shirt. >> steve: look for mr. romney to wind up with a bump in the polls, because of the president's weak one. and she writes of the president. he's never been punctured before but by debays and wednesday night. if you open the window, this is what you heard. soft hiss of air departing from a balloon . she said the president is a very good politician . >> gretchen: it will be a town hall setting and that is a different environment and questioning coming from the audience. brian excellent point to bring up. i was thinking that this morning and how many people watch the debate. that was a concern that i had . had people been energized to care and listen to the differences between the two cand des. two find out more people watched the debate since 1992 was heartening. the idea that that many people wanted to come to the tv and see what was going on in the nation was heartening. >> steve: pat buchan an said it was the best one in 52 years. but pat going back to the kennedy/nixon debate. >> gretchen: people on the democratic side tried to come up w
